For many seniors, elder abuse is a difficult topic to discuss. Because most seniors who are affected by abuse often know and trust the person mistreating them, they may feel ashamed or embarrassed to tell anyone about it.
The abuse experienced by older adults can be hidden or go undetected. It is important that seniors who are being abused have access to information, so that they can make informed decisions and be aware of the help available to them.
